Of interest to people who may have known Miss Margaret (Peggy) Roberts MEd age 98 former president of OMEP.
She’s in the Royal Worcester hospital London after a fall two weeks ago, which broke her thigh (she was visiting her niece when it happened) – sadly she’s now not expected to recover.
We didn’t finish her book, although quite a bit is done and working on it kept her going. I was helping her to organise and transcribe it.
Please can you pass this message onto people who should know – and ask them to contact me for news.
Very best wishes Jan (former Child Development student)
